Where do I go from here?
Aug 2, 2004

I've been treated with all three Hepatitis B treatments, and am currently on adefovir but my viral load are 450+ and the liver specialist said he was going to present my case at a conference for any further treatment, but I keep researching and don't find anything out there, but I was told I have to go on some kind of treatment within the year, so where do I go from here?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

You need to take tenofovir(Viread) and either FTC or lamivudine. The combo pill of FTC/tenofovir will be out this month, I am told. Should be th best thing since sliced bread for hep B! DTD
